• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I stand corrected from a few months ago..
I was told Knox County would wait to be rebanded and go digital safe-t....Apparently they are going to totally abandon their existing system and use the State equipment?
They are also going to remain ANALOG...wow....I guess the State is sympathetic in that they have an a$$ load of analog radios already in service. Every volunteer fireman, cop, emt, has a radio.
I was under the impression they were going to connect their system to the State but guess not since safe-t is on the air on a different tower. This came straight from the guy reprogramming Knox Co's radios.

Interesting.. So all the frequencies are going to change to the SAFE-T system? Doesn't Vincennes site only have 3 frequencies on the SAFE-T system, vs their 6 now?

yup...only 3 channels on the air but they have a tower at Edwardsport that will pick up some of the slack and the Monroe City area will probably affliate with Petersburg most of the time.
